Paper Abstract

In order to statistically represent the turbulence encountered in a structured environment, the established procedure has been to employ simple mathematical generalizations of models that are known to perform well for atmospheric turbulence. However, for the non-Kolmogorov regimes of interest, this approach encounters theoretical as well as practical difficulties of a fundamental nature. These will be described in detail, along with new analytical methods better suited to the particular problem. Finally, results of wave optics computer codes implementing these techniques will be presented for specific realizations of the environment as computed by the hydrodynamic models.
